MyPlate Nutrition: An Introduction & Review Activities
This Power Point Presentation is an introduction to MyPlate for preschool, kindergarten, & first grade. It explains the purpose of MyPlate, each of the food groups (servings, what foods belong in each group, benefits), and includes interactive review slides for each food group which test students’ understanding by having them choose foods that belong in each food group. When a correct picture is clicked a smiley face correct symbol is shown and the food moves to the appropriate place on MyPlate. When an incorrect food is chosen an unhappy face “try again” symbol is shown giving students immediate feedback.
Contains fun, colorful images to capture student attention and full-color photographs of the food so students can relate the food to their real world experiences.
